That this House welcomes the publication of the Alzheimer's Society report Home from Home which highlights large variations in the quality of care experienced by people with dementia in care homes; believes that good quality care improves quality of life for individuals living in care homes; notes that 420,000 people live in care homes in the UK and two thirds of care home residents have dementia; further notes that the primary function of care homes is now caring for people with dementia, many of whom will have complex needs; further notes that Government policy in recent years has focused on supporting people in their own homes; further believes that it is important that Government policy also considers the needs of the care home population; further notes that caring for residents with dementia is a highly skilled task; is concerned that only a minority of care home staff have adequate dementia training; believes the formation of the Commission for Quality Care should be used as an opportunity to ensure the new regulation and inspection systems focus on outcomes that matter to people with dementia, including access to outside space and activities; and urges the Government to ensure the National Dementia Strategy addresses the needs of the care home population.
